Interesting, but I won't hold my breath.

Re: hybrid FT and MFT 2013

Sounds like the obvious way to go and quite an exciting project. As one who has both 4/3 and m4/3 lenses and appreciates the superb quality of the current E-M5 sensor I am hoping that it will live up to MY expectations, which means that it will have the CAF tracking capabilities of some offerings from the "Dark" side.

Re: hybrid FT and MFT 2013

I'll wager the word "micro" gets phased out as well. It's sort of redundant at this point.

I agree. After all, it's the same size sensor yet "micro" seems to suggest a somehow inferior product.
